Everyone has their gizmos, gimmics, gadgets, and gear that they wouldn't leave home without. When it comes to Scouting, here's a few things that I'm thankful exist and why:
- Gore-tex - for helping us enjoy camping in the rain
- Victorinox - for making a high quality knife
- Ferrocerium - for making it possible to have sparks any time
- Dutch Ovens - for showing scouts you can cook real food outdoors
- Digital Cameras - for making instant, free memories possible
- Guyot Designs - for imaginitive, innovative products like squishy bowls, firefly light, and splashguards
- Raccoons - for teaching more scouts the value of securing food than all other animals combined
- Tentpole Clips - for saving thousands of minutes that would have been wasted sliding tentpoles through sleeves.
- Polar Fleece - for warmth in all it forms; hats, jackets, balaclavas, pants - everything but snuggies.
- Scout Challenge - for providing an incentive for older scouts to stay active in regular troop stuff.
Scout On and Happy Thanksgiving!
